This bowl is made from a red oak burl that someone gave me. It was part of a 300 pound burl that was trucked from Georgia to Ohio when a friend’s B-in-L came for a visit.

Red oak burl bowl with natural wood grain figure, woodturned art with live edge, tall bowl with foot.

This red oak burl bowl was turned using regular woodturning tools and is the only piece that I have made that my wife won’t let me sell.

It is finished with my usual finish: a coat of oil followed by a coat of Deft lacquer that I slathered on, let sit for a few minutes, and then wiped off. I learned this technique in a class with Dale Nish back in the late 80s at Craft Supplies.

As a way of introduction, I was the editor of Woodturning Design magazine before it folded some years ago. I am also a former Industrial Arts teacher.
